No, not "Armchair Detective" (which we have all heard of and seen), but "Armchair Adventure", something else altogether....
I recently uploaded an episode of a (1950s?) dramatic series titled "Armchair Adventure". I presume it is public domain based on a quick search of the US copyright office website.
But I'm confused about something....
....what the hell was "Armchair Adventure"?
IMDb and Wikipedia don't have pages on it, and searches of Paley Center and UCLA websites turn up nothing.
All I know is that it's an American series. The episode I uploaded is missing the cast list. I don't know if the main character in the episode was a regular, or whether it was an anthology series.
Honestly, I've tried searching and am having trouble finding proof the series existed. But there is a little proof.
Here it appears in a 1950s TV listing (copy and paste link):http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=WIouAAAAIBAJ&
Here it appears in a different 1950s TV listing (copy and paste the link):http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=mT1lAAAAIBAJ&
Oddly enough there also seems to have been a different "Armchair Adventure" series, which was a travel show.
